A garden pond or water garden needs some sun for blooming plants to look their best. However, siting ponds in full sun is asking for algae problems. The ideal site for a pond is a location that receives between four and six hours of direct sunlight. Also, if the site is a low-lying area, you may have to raise the edges to prevent run-off from flooding your pond.
